Gangsters & Grifters: Images from the Archives of the Chicago Tribune

August 17-November 1, 2015 | Milner Library Floor 2 SW
Presentation: Tuesday October 13, 4:00 pm
Circus Room, Bone Student Center, ISU

Gangsters & Grifters: Images from the Archives of the Chicago Tribune features a selection of reprinted photographs from the recent publication of the same name. These images document the crime scene in the city of Chicago during the 1920s and 1930s as seen through the eyes of the Tribune photographers. Their photographic storytelling captures ordinary people, notorious criminals, new technologies, and a spectrum of moments that define the roles cameras and photo journalists played in documenting the history of a city. Visit the exhibit on Floor 2 of Milner Library now through November 1, 2015.

Join us on Tuesday, October 13 at 4pm as Chicago Tribune photo editors, Marianne Mather and Robin Daughtridge, present their work compiling photographs for the Gangsters & Grifters publication from the archives of the Chicago Tribune. They will discuss their research and discoveries in the monumental collection of 4x5 glass plate and acetate negatives that are housed five stories below the Tribune Tower, many unpublished and unseen for decades.
